Himanshi Dhawan, New Delhi: The National Medical and Wellness Tourism Board headed by union tourism minister Mahesh Sharma will meet for the first time on Wednesday. The board was set up recently to devise strategies to attract medical tourists from overseas to the country's hospitals and wellness clinics, and issue guidelines to regulate the services these establishments offer.

The board will also work towards integrating various streams of medicine, including Ayurveda, Yoga, naturopathy, Unani and low-cost allopathic treatments.

The Confederation of Indian Industry expects India's medical tourism industry to touch $6 billion (about Rs 40,000 crore) by 2018, and reported that about 230,000 foreign patients sought treatment in the country last year, mostly from elsewhere in South Asia, West Asia and Africa.

Among the board members are Baba Ramdev, Medanta CMD Naresh Trehan, Devi Shetty of Narayana Health (formerly Narayana Hrudayalaya), Sangita Reddy of Apollo Hospitals, Rajit Mehta of Max Super Speciality Hospital in Delhi, and H.R. Nagendra of Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana.
